Employees will remain with the Penguins and receive full health benefits from the team.

First reported by Matt Vensel, over a video conference on Monday, Penguins’ CEO David Morehouse said it was “the most difficult thing I have ever had to do in my professional career.”

Morehouse will also be taking a 50% pay reduction, other senior executives and coaches will take a 25% pay reduction.
